The Pittsburgh Steelers played their hearts out to beat the Ravens 23-14. They're heading to Super Bowl XLIII! The following pictures are in honor of the team... Most are foods prepared to help cheer them on from the comfort of home!

Here's a link to a bunch of Steeler fight songs!

I love your Steelers pretzels! Very clever. And those sliders! Mmmmmmmmmm! Thanks for sharing your wonderful ideas! I usually make the same two things, no matter who is in the Super Bowl: Buffalo chicken wings and teriyaki wings. I'm so boring.

do you have the recipe for the banana bread with coconut?

Jewls04 - I used Best Banana Bread from this site, but I was short on banana. I used about half crushed pineapple to make up the difference (drained). Then I just threw in a couple handfuls of coconut and scattered some on top. Hope this helps...

thank you... You sent me the recipe for dutch noodle soup... My husband don't remember the recipe having roast beef in it but it does sound good... was thinking about trying it but leaving out the tomatoes puree... I dont care for too much cooked tomatoes... prefer them raw...LOL... but I think I may give the recipe a try... THanks... If nothing else it does sound like the noodle mixture he was talking about.

About Me
I have three teenage sons who are picky eaters (especially the middle one). I try to cook things that they might enjoy trying, but they're not always willing to try new things. My husband started out a picky eater when we met back in 1986, but he's gotten much better and is willing to try ALMOST anything I make. In my spare time I teach second grade. I have introduced my students to cooking and/or new foods over the years.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try all sorts of new recipes, so I don't really have a favorite thing to cook. I enjoy using fresh ingredients from the garden and canning those ingredients to use year-round. I also enjoy baking treats for my second grade class. I'll try almost anything if I think my family will eat it. Of course, I've been known to try a recipe because I want to, whether they'll eat it or not.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making the pumpkin pies and other desserts for Thanksgiving. I always like to try one new dessert for each holiday. Baking Christmas cookies is a tradition that goes back as long as I can remember.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some pretty cool cakes for my boys' birthdays. They include a firetruck, baseball, football, and Pokeball. I've also used shaped pans to decorate everything from Barney and Elmo, Power Ranger, Jeff Gordon's #24 racecar, football helmet, a dog and dog house, a monkey, a giant cupcake, and a penguin. Some recent cakes have been a pizza, chef's hat, and Topsy-Turvy (Mad Hatter Cake.) The last one didn't collapse - that was a real triumph! One of my best triumphs has been teaching my boys to cook. They'll never go hungry.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I cooked a turkey I relied on my thermometer to tell when it was done. It wasn't.
